Theo’s newborn photoshoot

We had the lovely Riette of Clearly Perceived Photography take Theo’s newborn photos many weeks ago and I’m now just posting them.  Life is a bit busier with two kids!  She is moving to North Carolina in a few weeks and I am SO sad!

Theo – 1 Month

Let’s just start off by saying it will be a miracle if I can A. complete these monthly posts for Theo, 2. complete his weekly pictures and C. complete his monthly photos.  See what I did there?  A. 2. C… That’s a little reflection of my mind these days.  All OVER the place.  I seriously can’t focus on anything for longer than 10 seconds.  Goldfish have more focus than me.  But I will do my best to get these done for Theo because he deserves it!  Ok let’s get down to business…

Theo’s One Month Stats
Weight: 10 lbs 10 oz
Length: 23″
Head: 37 cm

Theo’s birth stats are:
Weight: 7 lbs 1 oz
Length: 21″
Head: 34.5 cm

You can compare Caden’s one month stats here.

Day 2 & 3 in the Hospital with Theo

Day 2

Day 2 started out early.  ;D  Baby boy was awake all night mostly.  But this time (compared to Caden) we had the nurses take him to the nursery twice.  I got some really good sleep!  Well as good as can be expected since people come into your room every hour.  But every time someone came in, my mouth was wide open so that’s a tell tale sign of a deep sleep for Erin.  :)  At one point, the nurse came in and had to shake my leg to wake me up. Haha.  Geez, let a girl sleep!

Brandon ran out and got us some delish coffee from Cafe Caturra and I got ready for the day.  Theo snoozed away.  I wanted to be ready for Bella Baby so that when they came we could have our pictures taken.  They came about mid- morning and the photographer had another photographer with her who was “training”.  I took that to mean she was training with Bella Baby, maybe shadowing the other photographer.  Well the new girl didn’t even know how to use a camera!?  The experienced photographer was telling her “you need to turn your ISO down, here is where you do that…”  I couldn’t believe she didn’t even know how to use a camera.  So after 45 minutes (they’re supposed to be 10 minute sessions, the batteries dying in new girls flash and her not knowing how to use one lens) the shoot was over.  Theo was a champ and just laid there the whole time.  When we got the photos back later that day, I already had low expectations.  Good thing because they weren’t good at all. There was no way I was paying $140 for those pictures!  We were planning on doing a photo shoot with our friend, Riette anyway so it wasn’t that bad.

All ready for Bella Baby pictures!

We had lots of fun visitors come see us.

Day 3- Discharge Day!!!

We woke up pretty early because we wanted to get home asap to see Caden!  We missed him SO MUCH.  I may have cried a few times.  We decided not to have him come to the hospital because of the enterovirus outbreak. Apparently about 20 patients were brought to the hospital where we were so we didn’t want to risk it with him. In hindsight, I’m really glad he didn’t come because when he first saw us and Theo, he was very apprehensive and not his bubbly/lovey dovey self.
